(‘‘Exchange Act’’). Rule 17Ac2–2 and Form TA–2 under the Exchange Act require transfer agents to file an annual report of their business activities with the Commission. These reporting requirements are designed to ensure that all registered transfer agents are providing the Commission with sufficient information on an annual basis about the transfer agent community and to permit the Commission to effectively monitor business activities of transfer agents. The amount of time needed to comply with the requirements of amended Rule 17Ac2–2 and Form TA–2 varies. Of the total 373 registered transfer agents, approximately 9.2% (or 34 registrants) 8 17 E:\FR\FM\25JYN1.SGM CFR 201.431. 25JYN1 Federal Register / Vol. 83, No. 143 / Wednesday, July 25, 2018 / Notices would be required to complete only questions 1 through 3 and the signature section of amended Form TA–2, which the Commission estimates would take each registrant approximately 30 minutes, for a total burden of 17 hours (34 × .5 hours). Approximately 26.5% of registrants (or 99 registrants) would be required to answer questions 1 through 5, question 11 and the signature section, which the Commission estimates would take approximately 1 hour and 30 minutes, for a total of 148.5 hours (99 × 1.5 hours). Approximately 64.2% of the registrants (or 239 registrants) would be required to complete the entire Form TA–2, which the Commission estimates would take approximately 6 hours, for a total of 1,434 hours (239 × 6 hours). The aggregate annual burden on all 373 registered transfer agents is thus approximately 1,599.5 hours (17 hours + 148.5 hours + 1,434 hours) and the average annual burden per transfer agent is approximately 3.8 hours (1,434 ÷ 373). This rule does not involve the collection of confidential information. An agency may not conduct or sponsor, and a person is not required to respond to, a collection of information under the PRA unless it displays a currently valid OMB control number. The public may view background documentation for this information collection at the following website: www.reginfo.gov.

On January 8, 2018, NYSE Arca, Inc. (‘‘Exchange’’ or ‘‘NYSE Arca’’) filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission (‘‘Commission’’), pursuant to Section 19(b)(1) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 (‘‘Act’’) 1 and Rule 19b–4 thereunder,2 a proposed rule change to adopt new NYSE Arca Rule 8.900–E to permit it to list and trade Managed Portfolio Shares. The Exchange also proposed to list and trade shares of Royce Pennsylvania ETF, Royce Premier ETF, and Royce Total Return ETF under proposed NYSE Arca Rule 8.900–E. The proposed rule change was published for comment in the Federal Register on January 26, 2018.3 On March 7, 2018, pursuant to Section 19(b)(2) of the Act,4 the Commission designated a longer period within which to approve the proposed rule change, disapprove the proposed rule change, or institute proceedings to determine whether to disapprove the proposed rule change.5 The Commission received five comment letters on the proposed rule change.6 On April 26, 2018, the Commission instituted proceedings 35301 under Section 19(b)(2)(B) of the Act 7 to determine whether to approve or disapprove the proposed rule change.8 Since then, the Commission has received two additional comments on the proposed rule change.9 Section 19(b)(2) of the Act 10 provides that, after initiating proceedings, the Commission shall issue an order approving or disapproving the proposed rule change not later than 180 days after the date of publication of notice of filing of the proposed rule change. The Commission, however, may extend the period for issuing an order approving or disapproving the proposed rule change by not more than 60 days if the Commission determines that a longer period is appropriate and publishes the reasons for such determination. The proposed rule change was published for notice and comment in the Federal Register on January 26, 2018.11 July 25, 2018, is 180 days from that date, and September 23, 2018, is 240 days from that date. The Commission finds it appropriate to designate a longer period within which to issue an order approving or disapproving the proposed rule change so that it has sufficient time to consider the proposed rule change and the issues raised in the comment letters that have been submitted in connection therewith. Accordingly, the Commission, pursuant to Section 19(b)(2) of the Act,12 designates September 23, 2018, as the date by which the Commission should either approve or disapprove the proposed rule change (File No. SR– NYSEArca–2018–04).

    Rule 17Ac2-2 and Form TA-2, SEC File No. 270-298, OMB Control 
No. 3235-0337

    Notice is hereby given that pursuant to the Paperwork Reduction Act 
of 1995 (``PRA'') (44 U.S.C. 3501 et seq.), the Securities and Exchange 
Commission (``Commission'') has submitted to the Office of Management 
and Budget (``OMB'') a request for approval of the existing collection 
of information provided for in Rule 17Ac2-2 (17 CFR 240.17Ac2-2) and 
Form TA-2 under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 (15 U.S.C. 78a et 
seq.) (``Exchange Act'').
    Rule 17Ac2-2 and Form TA-2 under the Exchange Act require transfer 
agents to file an annual report of their business activities with the 
Commission. These reporting requirements are designed to ensure that 
all registered transfer agents are providing the Commission with 
sufficient information on an annual basis about the transfer agent 
community and to permit the Commission to effectively monitor business 
activities of transfer agents.
    The amount of time needed to comply with the requirements of 
amended Rule 17Ac2-2 and Form TA-2 varies. Of the total 373 registered 
transfer agents, approximately 9.2% (or 34 registrants)

[[Page 35301]]

would be required to complete only questions 1 through 3 and the 
signature section of amended Form TA-2, which the Commission estimates 
would take each registrant approximately 30 minutes, for a total burden 
of 17 hours (34 x .5 hours). Approximately 26.5% of registrants (or 99 
registrants) would be required to answer questions 1 through 5, 
question 11 and the signature section, which the Commission estimates 
would take approximately 1 hour and 30 minutes, for a total of 148.5 
hours (99 x 1.5 hours). Approximately 64.2% of the registrants (or 239 
registrants) would be required to complete the entire Form TA-2, which 
the Commission estimates would take approximately 6 hours, for a total 
of 1,434 hours (239 x 6 hours). The aggregate annual burden on all 373 
registered transfer agents is thus approximately 1,599.5 hours (17 
hours + 148.5 hours + 1,434 hours) and the average annual burden per 
transfer agent is approximately 3.8 hours (1,434 / 373).
    This rule does not involve the collection of confidential 
information.
    An agency may not conduct or sponsor, and a person is not required 
to respond to, a collection of information under the PRA unless it 
displays a currently valid OMB control number.
